the u.s. economy lost 371,000 jobs last month. to keep up with population growth, economists figure the u.s. needs to create 130,000 jobs a month. in a recovery, the u.s. should create something like 300,000 to 400,000 a month, enough to begin reducing unemployment significantly. that means the country won't recover the jobs lost to this recession until somewhere around the year 2014 at the earliest. economist dean baker says it won't be easy to replace the jobs lost because the recession has slammed housing and auto manufacturing, two sectors that usually drive the recovery in hiring. >> in the case of residential construction, we have enormous over-capacity. it's very difficult to imagine any significant increase in employment in that sector for years to come. in the case of autos, we can see increased demand, we probably will see increased demand, but a lot of that demand is going to be for foreign cars right now. >> reporter: of course, the economy will eventually create enough jobs to make up for those lost in the great recession. but those jobs may also be in different industr
